About Torkin Wakefield

Boulder has been our home for thirty years. We often travel to Africa on medical relief projects. We have two children and two grandchildren, a dog, a cat (neither included in rental--unless special arrangements are made) and fish in the pond. Charles is an AIDS doctor and Torkin has founded a poverty eradication project in Uganda called BeadforLife.

Torkin Wakefield purchased this house in 2009

Why Torkin Wakefield chose Boulder

A few years ago, after many years living in the mountain town of Gold Hill, we wanted to be closer to all the wonderful opportunities in downtown Boulder. We looked for two years until we found the really perfect home. It felt so like us we knew it was our next home. Imagine our surprise when the realtor called with the news we had been outbid and another family would call 'our' home theirs. Sure enough, 3 months later the new owner put it on the market as they were unable to make the finances work, and we were able to purchase what all along we knew was our lifetime dreamhome. And now you get to be at home here too.

What makes this house unique

Perfect Location near Pearl St. and North Boulder Rec. Center.

Comfortable natural spaces with lots of sunlight

Hot tub for long soaks

Gas fireplaces creates cozy ambiance

Beautiful outdoor space in back, perfect for entertaining

Dog door and fenced back yard

Fish pond with waterfall adding peaceful sounds to this beautiful yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved staying in your comfy home. It is full of light and beauty. And the location allowed us to get to everything in Boulder easily. Thank you so much.

Will be back.

A great home in Boulder

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the week before our daughter' wedding. Everything was just wonderful, and so comfortable. Very clean, and a great location to everything in Boulder. A very nice
neighborhood as well. We never did use the hot tub but enjoyed the lovely backyard...I highly recommend this property. The owners made it a very enjoyable experience.

Delightful Experience

  • 5 of 5
We booked this beautiful home to accommodate a family reunion. It was more interesting and comfortable than the description and pictures described. It had everything we needed as well as being well cared for. The surprise was how very interesting it was.....pictures and art work reflecting the owners commitment to helping others. It is located within walking distance of coffee and groceries..great addition ... and is in the hands of a competent and lovely property manager who is ready to be of help during the entire visit. We hope to return. Note that we recommend this for all different kinds of groups. The garden in the back is a beautiful area in which to just relax and share with others.

Very nice, convenient, private, and fun vacation rental for families

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two daughters (5yrs and 2yrs), parents and I stayed at this wonderful home while visiting Boulder. The location was perfect. A short walk away from an amazing pool and rec center, playgrounds, and a short bike or car ride from more playgrounds, Pearl Street, grocery stores, and restaurants. Close to everything Boulder has to offer! The house was beautiful and laid out well. Cassidy, the house manager, we very helpful and knowledgable, as well as the owners! My family had a great time together in the lush, private backyard and taking care of the fish. A non-road access to the Boulder bike path would have made this rental PERFECT!

Incredible House for our Extended Stay in Boulder

  • 5 of 5
The house was set up to accommodate our needs for the 7 weeks that we were in Boulder. It was light and airy. The furnishing were perfect for the house and fit our needs perfectly. The master bedroom was a dream come true. Lots of space with a spectacular master bath. There was a separate door to the backyard from the master bedroom where there was a hot tub located which we found really convenient. Our guests that visited us during our stayed in the upstairs bedrooms. So that gave everyone lots of space and privacy. The only comment we would have to make visitors aware of is that the extra bedrooms only have a double bed in each of the rooms. The size of the beds were fully disclosed on the VRBO description, but we forgot to tell some of our guests, who as it turns out had a hard time with the double beds. The location of the house was great and it was easy to get to Pearl Street Mall and the 29th Street Mall via bike paths. Also there is a very convenient "luxury" shopping center to the house with a small Whole Foods.

Our family was in Boulder for our daughter's wedding and chose this house for it's size and location in north Boulder near reception site. It couldn't have been more perfect! Cassidy, the property manager, met us and gave us a complete introduction to the workings of the house and was readily available for any questions or needs and did everything she could to make our stay wonderful. The house is beautiful as the photos reflect, great layout, sunny and homey, decorated with cultural décor from the owner's travels, had everything we needed for the week. The master suite is gorgeous and was just the perfect place for the bride to get ready on the wedding day! The back yard is a tranquil garden and koi pond oasis that we enjoyed for meals, relaxing, and visiting. And our granddaughter enjoyed feeding the fish! We aren't able to sit outside like that in MN, too many bugs! We arrived during a very hot spell so never used the hot tub but it was available. When one of our couples arrived they rented the carriage house for a few nights. It turned out that there was no A/C there and they were concerned about the heat for sleeping. Cassidy brought fans and did everything she could to make it comfortable and it ended up not being a problem, as the nights cooled off nicely. And it's a very nice, private space. We hosted a brunch for families the day after the wedding and the house was perfect for serving the food and the yard was great for eating and visiting. The sunken family room made a great place for the bride and groom to sit in front of the fireplace for gift opening and everyone could surround them and watch from staircase, couches, and kitchen. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, the community gardens, and to Pearl St. We also did hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, swimming in Boulder Creek, drove to Red Rocks. The location is very handy to grocery stores and any other shopping needs.
We had a wonderful week, a beautiful wedding, and miss being there already! We didn't get to meet Torkin and Charles, the owners, but communication with them was easy and they promptly responded to our questions and needs. We would readily stay here again and recommend this house for any family or friend gatherings.

Felt right at home!

  • 5 of 5
We felt right at home from the moment we walked into the door! The house was warm and inviting with plenty of room to sit and relax. As a party of five, we all had our private sleeping quarters, all of which were very nicely laid out. The house has lots of windows bringing in a lot of natural light and there are live plants everywhere throughout the house. The back yard was very comfortable and serene with a fish pond adding to the very peaceful environment. We all felt very comfortable at this wonderful house and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. We did not take advantage of the extra guest house in the back yard of this property but it looked very nice as well and adds more space for larger parties. With it being only a few blocks from Pearl Street, this was an ideal location in downtown Boulder.

Conveniently located near the Pearl Street Mall and the North Boulder Recreation Center you can walk or bike to restaurants, shopping areas, and recreation. The house is on a quiet tree-lined street, not far to the University of Colorado. It has a carriage house directly behind it that can also be rented for an additional fee for larger groups. A great house for CU events. Close drive to skiing, Rocky Mtn National Park, and Denver. The hot tub and beautiful back yard with pond and waterfall make this home a cut above the rest.
